Tools & Blooms Spring Prize Pack Giveaway!

Posted by Jenna | Friday, May 10, 2013

Although I was beginning to wonder if it would ever actually feel like Spring once it arrived, it finally is starting to! After more than a foot of snow last week, we're finally seeing green grass and warmer temps. YAY! Our family loves this time of year, because it means we can get outside and enjoy the sunshine and warmth that we've been missing all winter long! As Kaelyn and Kaden get older, they enjoy helping out more with outdoor jobs too! Last summer it was fun to work with them in our garden. This year they've asked if we can learn more about flowers and plant some too. Of course, I said yes! What a fun things for us to do together.

There are some really fun ways to go about it too! As a teacher I love books that go along with the activities that I do with my kids, which is why I was excited to learn about two original picture books by Craigmore Creations that would be perfect!

One of the books is Tool. Time. Twist. A Brief History of Tools Through Time. This uses hilarious illustrations and fascinating facts to take readers through the history of tools from the stone hand ax to the modern toolbox. The "twist" will satisfy the curiosity of all budding DIY'ers when they learn not just what each tool is and when it was invented, but also how to use it. This book would be great for inspiring some fun summer outdoor projects!

The second book is one we were sent. It's Flowers by Number which gets kids counting flowers, petals, stems and stamens while being introduced to some of the most beautiful wildflowers at the same time. The kids and I enjoy reading through this book and have found each page to be beautifully illustrated, as well as providing fun facts for each flower. Kaelyn who is a little bit older enjoys learning all about these flowers, while Kaden really enjoys the numbers and counting part of it. It's fun that they can both learn from it, and get excited about planting flowers soon!
To celebrate the publication of these two titles, Craigmore Creations sent me a 3-piece children's garden tool set and a packet of wildflower seeds to go along with the Flowers by Number book. Now that spring is finally here, we can enjoy not only reading this fun book, but also planting our flower seeds with the fun tools and watching them grow! YAY! The kids are super excited,  this is our project to do this weekend.

WIN IT: Craigmore Creations has also put together a very fun giveaway prize pack that will give your child all the TOOLS he or she needs to grow their own beautiful wild flower garden. The prize pack will include: a hardcover copy of Flowers by Number, a hardcover copy of Tool. Time. Twist. A Brief History of Tools Through Time, a 3-piece children's garden tool set and a packet of wildflower seeds!!(basket of flowers not included)

This giveaway is open to US Only and will end May 27th
